Now that spring is in full effect you will really notice it, things are changing again. The sun shows itself now and then, the summer dresses are coming out of the closet, Scheveningen was full again this week o_O and it is rumbling around us. It is rumbling from the tidying neighbors. All the shed contents onto the sidewalk, brushing and vacuuming, throwing it away and -hope- everything neatly ordered back inside.
Cleaning up is SO good! Not only for the space around you, but also very much for your mind. And that's why a few great tips for you to clean up your house this spring. Put it at number 1 on your Spring bucket list : CLEAR UP!
TIP 1 - Marie Kondo, the manga comic book
Yes, there she is again, Marie shows up here more often, but that's because it works so well. Do you not like to read yourself or do you have a bunch of (pre) adolescents at home who don't like cleaning up? Then this manga comic book may not only be a useful tip for you. The story is about Chiaki, a young woman in Tokyo who struggles with a cluttered apartment, a cluttered love life and a lack of focus. In a playful way, Marie Kondo helps Chiaki to get her house - and life - in order. An entertaining case study for all ages, illustrated by award-winning manga artist Yuko Uramoto.

You see, spring and cleaning always go together
Whether you do it very thoroughly with cleaning and digging through the shed/attic, or just scan the living room for clutter - it's delicious anyway. If you flop on the couch after an afternoon of messing around and throwing away in your tidy and nicely scented living room, it really makes you happy. And that's what we do it for!
